COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s

 The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all children aged 5-11, in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). As well as protecting children against serious COVID infection and Long COVID, this will reduce the risk of children passing on the infection to others.

 

The practice is currently not offering vaccinations for this age group, unless they are within one of the at-risk groups who will be invited, but you can book an appointment at a convenient community or pharmacy vaccination centre. Please book online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119, free of charge.

 

For further information on COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s please visit the NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group website.

Update 20.06.2022

🍎  FREE NHS Health Checks are available again in Wakefield!

 

Take 20 minutes out of your day (or evening or weekend) to finally catch up on your health. These vital health check ups can spot your risk of diabetes, heart & kidney disease, stroke and dementia.

For more details on how to book contact the surgery on 01977 704777, please call at quieter times, we know the phones are very busy. 

 

 

Patient Guide to Services

It’s Your Practice: A patient guide to GP services has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients. 

This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.

The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.

Apple and StethoscopeIt is split into several sections including:

  • General Practice explained
  • Choosing the right practice for you
  • Registering with a GP practice
  • Seeing your GP – consultations
  • Seeing your GP – the next steps
  • After your GP consultation
  • Your health record
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a patient
  • Get involved with your practice


The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.
